Alex Owumi
ALEX OWUMI

Worthing Thunder (NBL D1) tabbed experienced 34-year old American (has also Nigerian passport) guard Alex Owumi (196-95kg-84, college: Alcorn State). He is not a newcomer in British League as he played most recently at Surrey Scorchers (BBL). In 33 games he averaged 10.7ppg, 5.1rpg and 2.4apg last season. NBL D1 will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time.
The previous (16-17) season Owumi played at London Lions (also in BBL) where in 37 games he had 13.8ppg, 5.1rpg, 3.5apg and 1.0spg. He helped them to make it to the semifinals.
Among other achievements Owumi won British BBL championship title in 2014. He received also Eurobasket.com All-British BBL 3rd Team award back in 2015.
Owumi is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball he experienced life in four different countries playing on three different continents. He is familiar with European, African and of course North American leagues. Owumi has played previously professionally in France, Libya (Nasr) and FYR Macedonia (Lirija).
He attended Alcorn State until 2008 and it will be his eleventh (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Let's have closer look into Owumi's outlook: Good Athleticism has great speed and quickness along with very quick hands. Alex is also a fierce competitor who is a winner. A very smart player who can flat out shoot it from anywhere on the court. Has a solid body and he is also a good defender and a team player.
